Yes but it is heavy. 360 lbs. We have to pick the cab up with a mini to service. Do you know of an external air cleaner? Where it is located is a bi%ch to get to. I would like to move it outside of the engine compartment.

Some big radiator tubing and a Donaldson pre-cleaner might work.

Here is a mans saw I don't think Junior would even go near it

www.youtube.com/watch?v=p87AKPxNWUc&feature=channel_page

It is a 076 it is one size bigger than the 051. The 076 has a 60 inch bar on it mainly for bucking large cedar.

Here is a even bigger mans saw

Now this is a saw that I know Junior wouldn't touch

I added the pre cleaner right off the bat. It's very dusty here in the summer. Couldn't make it three hours before the filter clogged. I was worried about adding hose and causing restrictions.

Those are big saws definatly not for the people with some saw experience.

Like I said those saws with the long bars are for cutting large old growth cedar into rounds then they are split into shake bolts for cedar shakes and shingles. The reason for such a long bar is you have to make the rounds you cut perfectly even because shake bolts have to be exactly 24 inches and shingle bolts 18 inches. So when you cut the round off the log it has to be square etc.

Not yet, I went and looked at the 3 saws, 290, 310 and the 455 husky, I am not real impressed with the Husky because I wont get the service I'll need if something breaks, plus I am leary of dropping that much change on a product that I've never had any experience with.. But I've decided on the 310, the dealer said they'd just sold the 1 310 they had but were getting everything put together and a few more 310's would be on the floor my like 11 this morning, so I am going to go pay for it once I get a call back from this job if she goes for it and from talking to them they liked the whole deal, but we'll see..

MS310 is a good choice over the 290.

Thats what I thought, the 310 runs the same bar and chain as the 290, but has more power and is only $50 more, so which one would you go with? But I still want a 361, that thing is a freakin hoss!
